Finally! I got something done!

There's a freebie for you today - I finally finished Kim B's color challenge on DSO and I've got a kit for you - I loved the colors this month :-)

In other news - we're going to visit my mom in germany in two weeks. This will be the first long drive with our new car, so we're pretty excited. We bought a Renault Modus in August and we're pretty happy with it so far - but this will be the big test. Its a 5 hour drive to Nürnberg where my Mom lives.
Also, on that weekend there will be a class reunion of my old school, so I'm pretty excited to show off my big belly there :-)

I'm almost done ith my 2009 calendar that I'm doing as a present for family and friends for christmas this year. With the baby due in the middle of december, I have to get my presents done very early this year!
If you're on a budget, a scrapbooked calendar is a pretty good, low clutter and fun to do present. I use www.foto.com to develope the calendar - I'm using a big calendar, but they start at 12 €. And I'm sure you can get them cheeper at other companies - they just have the format I want :-) You digitally scrapbook and they do the nasty work...
Its a great way to give friends and family some pictures to look at for the next year.
Consider scrapbooked presents this year - they are a nice alternative to bought presents, much more personal, fun to do and not too expensive.

So, after reading my little excursion into the world of christmas presents, here is you're well deserved reward:

Its on 4shared as usual - please do not share the link, send people here instead. I love comments, but I like them better here than on 4shared. Thank you loads!


  1. What a beautiful kit, Vee! Thank you!

    I always do a few gifts that are made by me every year Those are the special ones and I try to do the Nani-made gifts for different people each year. This year, hopefully, I'll have the heritage books for my brother and our cousins done. Those are special because as adults, we don't exchange gifts between the cousins, just everyone's kids. So the books for everyone will really be a surprise!

    Enjoy your trip! It sounds lie it will be a fun and special one!

    LOVE the fruit! Stunning job and glad you found time to play along this month ;-)
    Thanks so much for sharing it with us and have a great trip too!
